Support » Fixing WordPress » Using Shortcode with YouTube

  • Resolved mckendrick


    I’ve tried using the youtube shortcode without success. So I set up a test web site yesterday with the default theme 2011 at – (I should have called the site wp2011) to which I added no plugins and no new pages or anything else. All I have done is to add some additional code to the one and only post page.

    The shortcode that I added for YouTube is this – [youtube=] which shows up on the page completely uninterpreted and no video is played.

    I’ve also added some images and the gallery shortcode [gallery] to prove that shortcodes are being recognised and do work.

    Perhaps this shortcode doesn’t function on self-hosted WordPress sites – any ideas anyone?
